Everything you need to know: QRL Central Under 17 Girls Championships

Junior rugby league carnivals will take over Bundaberg this weekend as the best and brightest take centre stage at Salter Oval.

The QRL Central Under 17 Girls Championships will feature teams representing Sunshine Coast Falcons, Wide Bay Bulls, Central Queensland Capras and Western Clydesdales, with all six matches being broadcast live and free on

Fresh off a State of Origin series win with the Harvey Norman Queensland Maroons, coach Tahnee Norris will be among those attending the carnival to watch the girls bring their A game.

QRL Central's Wide Bay area manager Bryce Holdsworth said the carnival would show the strength of junior female rugby league competitions in the area and highlight pathways available for developing players.

"It just shows the girls that there's a pathway for rugby league. This one leads into possible selection for Queensland Under 17 Country and they'll play at the back end of the year," Holdsworth said.

"It is also a stepping stone for those 17-year-olds next year as most of these girls will be eligible for the Harvey Norman Under 19s.

"So it's a good opportunity for the younger ladies to showcase their skills and potentially get a crack at high-level football and make a career out of it if they choose to.

"They've put in a lot of prep work and in the last month to get them to where they are this week, so hopefully it pays off."

QRL Wellbeing staff will also be at the carnival delivering education sessions to participating teams.
